Crime

Rape of a 5 year old once again puts spotlight on the increasing crime graph in Uttarakhand

Published

The crime rate in the hilly state of Uttarakhand has been on an upward swing despite several claims by the state government of enhancing the police budget and therefore the subsequent improvement in the crime graph.

The most worrisome fact is that the cases of women rapes, murders, dowry deaths, and immolations are on the rise and adolescents too are the regular victims of these obnoxious rapes.
Citing one of such tragedies which people of the state are fully aware is the stalking of an 18-year Pauri girl and her subsequent immolation in broad daylight. A number of such shameful incidents has happened in Kotdwar, Satpuli, Pauri, Haldwani, Pithoragarh and Chamoli districts etc last year.
Several incidents of women assaults and harassment are not reported in the interior villages due to social stigma and the fear of criminals.
There are also no definite or authentic figures available if one asks for the crime statistics.
Yesterday the brutal and obnoxious rape of a mere five-year-old girl and subsequently viciously injuring her came to light in Raiwaala, Dehradun – the capital city of Uttarakhand state.
The rapist fled from the crime scene after raping and injuring the innocent girl who is in an extremely critical condition.
The incident occurred yesterday under the Raiwala police station’s jurisdiction in Haripurkalan area.
According to sources, the police have got the severely injured child rape victim admitted in a government hospital of Haridwar and are on the lookout for the culprit, who is still at large.
There is tension all around and the local residents are extremely furious. This incident has once again put the spotlight on the rising crimes against girl child and women in Uttarakhand.
According to a report in TOI last year,  a look at the FIRs registered in the police stations across Uttarakhand, tells us that on an average there are about eight cases of crime reported in the state every day.
What is more worrisome is the fact that the cases of dowry-related deaths and rapes reported in 2018 have doubled from the previous year, while cases of molestations have also doubled compared to 2017.
As per TOI, data assessed from the police department from January to October 31, 2018 – 2,498 cases of crime were registered against women.
While during the first ten months of 2017, 2045 cases of women related crimes were registered in various police stations, in 2016 this figure was less than 2000 i.e. with 1745 cases.
As per the TOI report of 2018, the incidents of rapes increased to 438 while in 2017  the rape count was 237 and this figure was even less in the preceding year i.e. 2016 when 278 cases were registered.
In 2018 a 14 year mute and deaf girl was raped who also gave birth to the child while in Dehradun a 15-year-old student was raped by her seniors resulting in shock and sensation all around.
According to a news report, Haridwar and Dehradun are the worst criminally affected districts in terms of rape cases with Haridwar reporting 132 rapes cases followed by Dehradun with 110 cases in 2018.
Similarly, the incidents of molestation are also on the rise across the state as per police records showing 67 cases of molestations in 2018 which has increased from 29 in the year 2017.
According to recent information,  in 2019-20 the Uttarakhand government has allocated 4.2% of its budget for the expenditure in the police which is considered to be the highest than the allocations in other states (3.9%) in 2018-19.
The point is mere allocation of the budget is not enough as the state police machinery from top to bottom will have to be more vigilant and action-oriented in curbing the rising crime graph across Uttarakhand, especially ensuring the safety and security of women considered to be the most vulnerable lot of the society.
It’s a common saying that Uttarakhand has become a safe haven for outside and domestic criminals.
The efficient police of this hilly state will have to use its acumen and intelligence to crush the criminals and rapists who are nothing but parasites on our society.
The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat had last year assured that his government will soon bring legislation to award death penalty to the rapists of the minor girls but what nothing has happened regarding this.

Speaker fixes Thursday for floor test in Karnataka Vidhana Soudha

Speaker of Karnataka Vidhan Saudha

Read Time: 3 minutes

The Karnataka political turmoil seems to have reached to a conclusion for the time being as both the warring parties, the Congress JD( U) combine and the BJP have agreed to a proposal for calling the floor test on Thursday at Bengaluru Vidhana Soudha to finally decide which political party commands the requisite majority to form the government in the  southern state.

The former chief minister and BJP leader Yaduruppa had met the speaker and had requested him to call the house for floor test at the earliest but the latter had turned it down as the apex court’s decision of the Karnataka impasse is to be delivered tomorrow evening.
Meanwhile, emerging out of the political affairs committee meeting, the former Congress CM of Karnataka and CLP leader Sidharamaih revealed that after discussions with the Congress JD ( S) combine as well as the BJP the speaker has fixed Thursday for the floor test in the Karnataka Vidhana Soudha.
There will be a detailed debate in the house and the voting will take place thereafter.
This means that now both the Congress JD ( S) alliance and the BJP are quite eager to derive maximum advantage from the impending political crisis and  for this, they have three days with them.
Political observers say the ruling coalition leaders will do their best to woo the annoyed dissidents during these 72 precious hours.
However, it remains to be seen whether the obstinate dissidents, now in all 17 in numbers will fall into the Congress JD( S) trap?
It may be recalled that all the dissident lawmakers of Congress and JD(S) are still holed up in a Hotel in Mumbai and are still adamant over resigning from their respective seats. Further, they want to extend their undisputed support to BJP.
They have also lodged a complaint with the highest police authority of Mumbai to provide them adequate security as they fear for their life.
They have also asked the police authorities to not allow any political leader of Mumbai or Karnataka visit them in the hotel as their decision to resign and thereafter also support the BJP is final.
It may be recalled that at the first instance about 14 to 15 MLAs of the Congress and JD( S) had submitted their resignation letters to the speaker followed by two independent and three Congress lawmakers.
This had led to the reduction of the JD(S) Congress strength from earlier 118 to 101 while the BJP’s strength increased to 107 after the support of the two independents.
According to political analysts if the ruling coalition succeeds to persuade a minimum of six of its MLAs if not all, it would still be in a comfortable position to save their government. As for sure one vote of the speaker in the event of a tie would go in their favour.
However, the Karnataka crisis has further aggravated and all eyes are now fixated on tomorrow’s apex court judgement as well as the floor test on Thursday. For now, the Supreme Court has directed the speaker to maintain the status quo.

#3 — Always cook the ingredients in an order to make the dish appetizing and tasty. For example, onions should go first in the oil, then garlic and then ginger and tomato as each veggie has its own cooking time.
#4 — In order to retain the bright green color of peas add a pinch of sugar before boiling or cooking.

#5 — Add a teaspoon of oil while cooking dal to avoid frothing and spilling all over.

#6 — Use heavy bottom pan or vessel for cooking upma or kheer. Heavy based pan prevents food from burning.

#7 — To make the puris crunchy and crispier add 2 to 3 tablespoon rava or semolina to the wheat flour while kneading.

#8 — To separate the strings of noodles or pasta from each other keep it under running cold water for 2 to 3 minutes, immediately after boiling. Hot and cold water treatment prevents the noodle strand from sticking to each other.
#9 — To make ‘a day old’ muffin fresh, sprinkle few drops of water on it and put the muffins in a paper bag and microwave for 10 seconds. Steam revives the moisture content of day-old muffins.

Ajay Bhatt MP and state BJP president is against the opening of liquor plant at Devprayag

State BJP president and MP speaking to reporters in Haldwani opposing the opening of liquor plant at religious township Devprayag, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand
Spread the love
Read Time: 4 minutes

The present government of Uttarakhand is in the midst of controversy for opening a liquor manufacturing plant in the religious township Devprayag, the main confluence point of two rivers Bhagirathi and Alaknanda in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand.

Devprayag possesses tremendous spiritual and religious sanctity from these points of view, especially, it being the main confluence area of two pious rivers emanating from  Gangotri glaciers and finally forming the pious Ganges.
Uttarakhand is the abode of Gods having four most sacred ancient shrines viz Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath, and Devprayag town being the central point which gives passage to tourists and pilgrims from all over the country. Visiting these four important religious shrines hold tremendous spiritual and religious sanctity. The people feel that the opening of the liquor factory will vitiate the holy environment of this peaceful spiritual township.
The government of Uttarakhand has opened a liquor factory here producing its own liquor brand called Hill Top to be supplied to all the official  liquor vends in the entire state to earn handsome revenue as the state’s financial deficit is growing by the day having crossed 45000 crores by now which was merely 6000 crores or less when the state was formed.
There is strong opposition by the local populace to the opening of the liquor factory of this domestic brand at the Deprayag religious township, which will otherwise vitiate its otherwise pious tranquil environment.
It has been learned that after the Hill Top whiskey brand being produced by the Devprayag liquor plant is now also available in the market. The controversy has further aggravated as the opposition and protests in media continue to grow.
People are questioning the credibility and integrity of the government which majorly believes in the Hindu way of life.
Therefore the emphasis on selling liquor on a massive scale to bridge its financial deficit than banking on other alternative mediums like through the promotion of tourism, improving the condition of agriculture, encouraging industrialization, etc is not in sync with their ideology.
The government is emphasizing on liquor sale in the state on a wide scale to generate maximum revenue irrespective of the fact that hundreds of thousands of poor families will get affected, liquor addicts will die of liver-related diseases due to excessive liquor consumption and the socio-cultural structure and fabric of the society will be wrecked.
Even the Uttarakhand BJP chief and a newly elected member of parliament from Nainital Ajay Bhatt has expressed his reservation on the opening of the liquor plant in Devprayag.  He has questioned that while in the opposition the entire BJP had opposed the Denis brand allegedly introduced by the then Congress government at the cost of another prestigious brand, then how can our government do the same while in power?
Ajay Bhatt stated he does not know as to when this liquor plant was opened. The idea would have been to give employment to the locals.  Even then he will take up this issue with the chief minister Trivendra Rawat in this context.
It may be recalled that the government of Uttarakhand’s excise department considers the widespread selling of liquor in the hills as its main and major source of income as it generates Rs. 2300 crores annually through massive liquor sales.
The BJP government of Uttarakhand had been extremely liberal in selling liquor in Uttarakhand as it considers it to be as a big revenue source of more than 2 thousand crores annually.
Liquor was also supplied through the mobile vans in the interiors where protests led to the closure of authorized liquor shops.
The government has allowed the sale of liquor even in grocery shops having an annual turnover of Rs. 50 lakhs.
The licence fee has been fixed at Rs. 5 lakhs to procure the liquor licence for the grocery shops.
Even in twenty room capacity hotels with Rs. five lakh licence fee, liquor shops have been allowed by the excise department.
According to the website of the excise department, the Excise department of Uttarakhand is the second largest revenue contributor to the state government.
As per its website, the department has the challenging objective of automating the alcohol supply chain management system in the whole of Uttarakhand in real time and also to increase the revenue collection of the department.
As per sources, the liquor vendors charge 10 to 20 rupees extra on every single sale without even receipts and the quality of the majority of these brands are allegedly below standard as compared to the liquor of Delhi.

The drug menace in India is a protracted problem which has percolated down to the grassroots destroying the younger generation irrespective of class and categories of the society.
There was the time when drug consumption was allegedly considered to be the forte of the affluents and the rich children through expensive rave parties in hotels but today it has percolated down in the children and youth of the lowest ebb of the society spoiling the health and career of the children and the youths of the country.
Punjab being the border state of Pakistan had been the worst sufferer during the last three decades where smuggling of narcotics/drugs from neighboring Pakistan has not only made the domestic smugglers highly rich and affluent but has also spoiled the majority of the young generation by way of making them horrible victims of this dreaded menace, further leading to enhancement in crimes, mortality rate and spoiling of myriad families.
The drug menace in Punjab is so extensive that even names of politicians involved in this rapid money making drug syndicate have come to the fore.
The local police, politicians and drug syndicates’ alleged nexus has further spread the tentacles of narcotics smuggling in Punjab ultimately leading to the spoiling of families and future of the nation, the youths.
A full-fledged feature film titled UDTA PUNJAB was made by Bollywood highlighting the lavish drug trade of Punjab and subsequent spoiling of myriad families due to this dreaded menace.
The worst phenomena about the drug trade are, it also accompanies terrorism with it, as the massive money earned through the smuggling of drugs, especially its finest form Heroine, which fetches a whopping Rs. one crore for a kilogram in the international market is clandestinely used to fund terrorist activities in the country by way of purchasing and acquiring illegal arms to kill innocents and the law enforcing agencies personnel behind them like the police, paramilitary and the Army troopers and the officers.
A report by senior journalist Shishir Gupta in HT highlights the investigative details about increasing activities of Pakistan’s drug smugglers in India whose primary aim is to fund terror activities in India through the handsome earning from drugs smuggling.
According to the news report, Pakistan’s ISI has strengthened its drug smuggling activities to pump them in India through three countries viz Maldives, Sri Lanka, and India Coast guard.
These drug smuggling syndicates of Pakistan in league with the ISI are resorting to massive narcotics smuggling to fund terror activities in Pakistan says his report.
To substantiate this contention there was a major haul of 50 kg of heroine from a Pakistani boat in Sri Lankan Coast Guard on Indian authorities’ input in the nation’s exclusive economic zone on July 10th.
Similarly, on May 21st the Indian Coast Guard seized 218 kilograms of Heroine from a Karachi registered Pakistani shipping boat AL MADIA of Jakhua in Kuch districts of Gujarat.
In all 6 crew members were arrested with 194 packets of heroine smuggled from Karachi Pakistan.
Sr. journalist Shishir Gupta’s report further mentions that around the same time the Maldivian police seized an Iranian boat with Pakistani national on board on May 26 with a large quantity of drugs.
In Gujarat seizure though the boat was set ablaze by the Pakistani smugglers, the intelligence reports revealed that the consignment was handed over by the Pakistani agent Hamid Malik to boat captain Mohammed Aslam to be delivered to a Mumbai resident Badruddin Shiekh.
The report further reveals that the role of narcotics smuggling from Pakistan to India and its use in funding terrorists in India was first revealed by the Laskare Tayyeba terrorist of US origin David Colemen Headly while being interrogated in 2010 for his direct involvement in the deadly Mumbai attack on 26/11 diabolically killing 161 innocents including a senior police officer Hemant Karkare.
This is a new strategy adopted by the ISI to smuggle a massive quantity of drugs in India worth hundreds n thousands of crores through Maldives and Srilanka in order to fund terror misadventures in India.
The total cost of the earlier seizures of drugs amounts in hundreds of crores as per the rates in international markets.
Similarly, as per another report of journalist Anil Sharma, the border village of Punjab just few hundred meters near the Pakistan border quite infamous for massive heroine smuggling from across the border has till now 106 cases of drugs smuggling against 48 families under the Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Act least worried for stringent jail terms.
Located at the stone’s throw from the Indo Pak border’s barbed wire fence and merely forty kilometers from the district headquarters, Havelian village had been in the news after the custom authorities at the Attari check post found 532 Kg of Heroine and 52 Kg of mixed narcotics concealed in the consignment of rock salt from Pakistan on June 29th.
The total cost of this consignment if sold in the international market would be whopping 570 crores or more.
Except for 6 to 8 families of Havelian village in Taran Taran, all of them are allegedly involved in drug smuggling making an easy buck.
About 20 families in the wanted list after earning handsomely in this trade had shifted elsewhere like Amritsar, leaving their lands barren.
This village has become the main conduit for smuggling heroin since the last four decades as per Anil Sharma’s report in HT having started opium smuggling after partition on a low key.

Tyres never get tired: Brilliant Ideas For Recycling Tyres!!!!

Published

Spread the love
Read Time: 2 minutes

Are you aware that every year one tire is discarded per person? In Europe, only half of the discarded care tires are recycled and rest is burned or simply thrown. Keeping this in mind I have come up with great ideas to transform the unwanted tires into useful items. Let’s learn.

Things required:
An old tire, wooden board, a jigsaw, acrylic paint, sandpaper and brush, pencil, measuring tape and rope.

Let’s do it:
Step 1: Measure the diameter of the tire.

Step 2: Draw a circle on the wooden board.

Step 3:
Cut the wooden board by using a jigsaw and polish the edges by using sandpaper. Then paint it on both sides. Use the same to cover the bottom of the tire.

Step 4: Paint the tire.

Apply a primer on the tire to seal the surface well to prevent it from cracking. Then paint the outside with the paint of your preferable color. Finally, place the cushion over the wood board.

You can also make a coffee table using the same method.

Not limited to sitting arrangements, tires can also be used as beautiful planters as below.

Another brilliant idea of using the old tires is making a cute cozy bed for your pets.

Happy DIY 🙂
